Edit Profile

Research Narrative:

Dr. Yu’s laboratory is focused on understanding how signaling via the bone morphogenetic protein (BMP), activin, growth and differentiation factor (GDF), and TGF-beta signaling pathways regulate the consequences of injury and inflammation in cardiovascular and musculoskeletal biology. These themes have been explored in models of pulmonary arterial hypertension, vascular and valvular calcification, anemia of inflammation, heterotopic ossification, and fibrodysplasia ossificans progressiva, with a goal of translating mechanistic insights into novel therapeutics.
